Get ready to book work because after you train with me you'll understand how to break down a scene, develop a character, make interesting and truthful choices, engage your emotional instrument, and truly be Captivating to watch on the big screen. I will prep you for auditions, teach you different camera techniques (close us vs 3/4 shot, vs master shot), and so much more. I have a rich background in various acting techniques as well as great insight from the many directors and coaches I have worked with in my own professional career.

My first lesson with Zach was great! 5 stars. He asked the right questions as to what aI am looking to do. And we quickly came up with a lesson plan that with the right amount of work in my part will get me headed in the right direction.
